    If govt is so keen to introduce an institution to control "media ethics" they should also think of a mechanisam to curb those culprits who attack media instituion in "hit n run " manner. I believe that is the prime importance at this jucture, if that falls in line, media ethics to will follow.

    Of course, that this fire was staged too. What else?

    cp Friday, 30 July 2010 08:11 AM

    The minister of media will come before TV and would say " We will do a full scale investigation to this incident, which has been done to tranish the government's image etc etc "
    But guys you'll see nothing will happen there after. " Suba Anagathayak "

    We can expect a lot more, as there is no law and order in the country.

    Definitely " Anthare" is responsible for this attack

    Senkadaga Putha Friday, 30 July 2010 09:55 AM

    Lamaya Friday, 30 July 2010 05:22 AM

    I work at Siyatha TV... This is so sad... I felt like someone had caused harm to a close friend when I found out about this horrible news.

    Dinesh Friday, 30 July 2010 05:49 AM

    What is Siyatha media? I never heard that name before. How many radio channels in Srilanka?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 30 July 2010 06:38 AM

    With all that empty rhetoric of freedom of press, media and association, the whole thing is a big farce in this country
